hate

i dont know whats up up with all these people hating civics on the forum. first I would like to say i own one Ex. Ive been hearing people talk shit, I never diss anybodies car but lately people have been dissing mine. People say all this shit about how american muscle is awsome and all that. american muscle cars are fast i admit my ex would get smoked , but the reasom i bought it was for a project I like cars that you can work on add spped customize instead of getting a 300 horsepower muscle car. I dont pull up to people thinking im the shit either. also why nobody disses eclipse or talon when they put turbo on car but when someone puts it on civic its like oh ricer and all that shit. BTW the guys with muscle cars mod their cars too by putting supechargers sticking out of the hood and no one has a problem wit that but u mod civic everyone hates.

I tend to not worry about what others think when it comes to my honda. ive been told i waste money on shit but i like it so i don't care. People do diss talons and eclipses but civics are more common to the annoying person that pulls up next to you with a fart can and revs the engine thinking they are faster than you. Prove them wrong and blow them away. Or jsut f*ck em...let them speed off and you can just cruise.

Bravo... this attitude is a breath of fresh air. Just don't get lured into flaming back when the anti-rice brigade really fire up.

Its stupid to tune a Civic. They are not meant to be sports cars. But as long as they arent riced and you dont act like its going to be a good car, I dont have a problem with it.

Civic - Made to be economy car.
Eclipse/Talon - Made to be sports car.

Thats why.

Really? So I guess those people who run Civics/CRX's in the SCCA and WIN are wasting their time?

My biggest problem with civic owners is that many of them rice it up, then try to street race. The people who do turbo tend not to do it properly. Im singling out civics b/c i don't see nearly as much of any other car (domestics included) as the civic.

I still have a problem with people who like to improve the performance of their civic in general but im not discussing that.

Do you have the same problem with Accords...if they only get an intake, cat back exhaust and headers?

To me, the Prelude was the only Honda to actually have power, besides the NSX.
